"I should be more forgiving of people typing quickly in the holiday season, but I'm in a pedantic mood. What you meant was 'He might have just started'.."

No I meant what I said!! if he had scored the winner he might of got himself in the managers plans for Saturday with no Bliss and nobody knowing for sure if Reid will still be about he is the only recognised forward I'm the squad

You've made the same mistake again! Are you simply missing my point or are you taking the piss or are you really that thick? For the benefit of those who are, let me make it more clear: the correct grammatical expression, and the correct choice of words from the English vocabulary, is 'might have', not 'might of'.

Gullscorer, If you are going to start correcting grammatical and spelling errors on the site you're going to have a full time job.

Chill 8-)

Dullscorer.....

F*ck off and find something better to do with your time.

I think you'll find that's grammatically correct.

Happy New Year.

Agree, I cant be bothered to get the spelling or grammar correct, if the spell checker picks it up, good if it doesn't I don't care.

Don't start a campaign on here to correct grammar, it wont work, you will get stressed, and there really isn't any point in the scheme of things :-)

I have a vague feeling that this is, whether grammatically or otherwise, somehow incorrect. 8-)

Dear Gullscorer,

May I give a gentle criticism of your message timed at 12.02. Please note that this is in the interests of improving communications between all of us at a time when messages are being misconstrued on a regular basis.

I have to state that your construction and word spacing when starting new new sentences could be better viz:

You have not double spaced when commencing new sentences.
In the second sentence the first 'or' is redundant as all you needed was a comma.
The meaning of your third sentence is unclear, I quote: "for the benefit of those who are....". What do you mean here? For the benefit of those who are wearing galoshes or who are hanging from telegraph poles? You must be specific. This sentence also contains a needless slang word, I presume to make the readers react.

I look forward too an improvement in your work as you have it in you to you achieve a good result at the end of term.

Yours sincerely

etc. etc.

Aha, hoist by his own petard, Gullscorer, I see that the sentence spacing is a quirk of the software so please go back to the top of the class

Perhaps some people on here should spend more time actually going to TUFC games home or away, rather than sitting behind a computer, boring people about grammer, that way instead of talking about saving/supporting the club they can actually contribute, instead of criticising the people that spend there hard earned money week in week out,paying to watch the team. I was under the elusion this was a football forum to talk about football?

Think this video confirms what I thought during the game, minimal contact on the keeper for the 5th goal, it also in my opinion confirms my thoughts that Moore came and then stopped for the 3rd, others of course may not agree, also shows this game could have neded with just about any score line.

At this distance and low angle I don't see how you can say it wasn't a foul.
It's all about opinions, and there's nothing in the rule book that says one persons opinion is more correct than another's.

The first and most key piece of evidence it wasn't a foul is, the reaction of the Torquay defenders, how many of them appealed for a foul, none, being it the 5th and equalising goal, our players would have been all over the referee if they'd thought it a foul.

Most of the fans stood near and around me all agreed it wasn't foul, but what confirmed it for me is, when I still framed the video at 12.34/35, it clearly shows the ball had slipped from Moore's grasp before the FGR lad made contact, in my view, and I have a feeling that's what our players saw, and why they didn't appeal, guess the referee took the same view.

This is not meant as a smash Brendan Moore post, would have loved it if the referee had given a foul of course, fairs, fair though, if the boot was on the other foot and we'd seen a goal disallowed in those circumstances, most of us would not have been to happy about it.

Had Bobby.O been in goal, would that ball ended up in our net, no, Bobby.o would have dealt with the ball and dumped the FGR lad in a heap on the pitch, any keeper at any level in those circumstances has to be stronger than that.
